The Go-Goggles (Japanese: ゴーゴーゴーグル Go Go Goggle) are a key item in the Hoenn-based Generation III and Generation VI games that allow Pokémon Trainers to pass through Route 111's harsh sandstorm. Without them, when the player tries to enter the desert, a message will pop up and say, "The sandstorm is too harsh!" and they will be turned away. Traveling through the route is necessary in order to obtain a Root or Claw Fossil from the northeast part of desertRSORAS/Mirage TowerE, which can be revived into Lileep or Anorith, respectively, in Rustboro City.
After getting the Heat Badge by defeating Flannery in Lavaridge Town, May or Brendan will appear and hand the item to the player, then ride off on their bicycleRSE or offer to travel with them to Petalburg CityORAS.
- In Pokémon Black and White, a Backpacker references this item, saying he doesn't need them in the Desert Resort.
- In Generation III, several NPCs in the desert mention wearing Go-Goggles. This is no longer the case in Generation VI, where the same characters now mention how the sandstorm is hurting their eyes due to their lack of Go-Goggles.
